Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Furious French fishermen threaten to block Channel demanding UK access” – below is their description.

Paris was infuriated when Jersey only granted licences to 12 small French boats out of 47 applications this summer – saying they had failed to provide evidence they were entitled. Last week other EU member states poured cold water on Emmanuel Macron’s (inset) bid to get them to sign up on immediate retaliation, instead agreeing a watered down declaration calling for more ‘technical’ work. However, the French fleet is now warning they are ready to take matters into their own hands.
